Today we include an entrance ticket to the Harrogate Spring Flower Show. The day is free to enjoy as you wish. As well as the Flower Show there are plenty of options in "The English Spa", as Harrogate became known in the Georgian era. Maybe take high tea at Betty's, experience the town's famous Turkish Baths or simply enjoy a stroll amidst Harrogate's vast green spaces.

DAY 3

Transferring by coach to Pickering, we board the North Yorkshire Moors Railway for a stunningly diverse journey in heritage carriages to the coast. Steaming across heather moorland landscapes, we pass by Goathland, familiar to many as 'Aidensfield' in 'Heartbeat', before descending to Whitby, a picturesque fishing port framed by its famous abbey. Stroll the quaint streets in search of Whitby Jet, climb the steps to the abbey or simply enjoy some of the finest fish and chips in Yorkshire before we make the return journey.

DAY 4

Today's excursion skirts the Dales as we transfer to Keighley. Here we board the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway for another scenic steam train journey through countryside made familiar through film, this time the Railway Children. Passing through the hills and dales reminiscent of Brontë novels, it is fitting that our journey takes in Haworth, home of the Brontë family. Here we visit the Brontë Parsonage Museum before returning to Harrogate for our final dinner.

B, D

DAY 5

We bid farewell to new found friends and make our way home.
